Hotpoint Side by Side leak and cooling issue

I have had a leak under the freezer door since I got this refrigerator second hand from my mom. The ice maker dispenser in the door and on the bottom of the ice tray freezes over with ice and I have to chip that off to dispense ice. Second, today the freezer still works but the refrigerator is not cooling. I have tried adjusting the temperature. What do I check on both of these to determine the problem?

Fault is poss that drain for defrost water is blocked and this can cause both faults. remove back cover of freezer and check if ice build up. if so melt of with hairdryer and make sure drain is also free of ice

Freezer compartment has ice while refrigerator compartment not cooling


the freezer blows cold air into the fridge section and then it returns,first open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,next from the bottom remove the second bin or draw and put your hand on the back wall,is there like snow or ice on the back wall,if so you have a defrost problem,you could have a bad timer,thermostat or a bad heater,also check the packages and the shelves,if you see frozen water droplets the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen up and the cold air can't be blown over to the fridge side.get back to me and tell me what you find and i can help you figure out what's happening

I have a hotpoint csx27h side by side refrigerator. the freezer get cold but the fridge part just started to where it wouldnt cool down. any suggestions? maybe the defrost?? the only things i have noticed...


check the operation of your damper door between the freezer and refrige compartments,this door opens and closes to throttle cold air from freezer to refrigerator compartment through the cold control,sometimes they freeze upand can't move,sounds like your door has frozen closed,if so,remove entire damper door unit,clean and deice,replace and see if this rectifies your troubles

If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.

Hotpoint csx22d side by side has leak under freezer side @ door...coming from wiring harness that runs up into bottom of freezer maybe??????


This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .
